A Simply Simple Shaker Card




This is the time of year when we don't know how long Last Chance items will be available. On Wednesday during What's Up! Stampers, I used a stamp set that is now no longer available, but it was such a great stamp set for the last year, that I'm sure not ashamed to share this card anyway. Plus, the simplest shaker card possible makes this blog post a MUST!





So what do you think of this:





I started with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Bubble Bath cardstock., folded in half, as my card base. I cut the circles design from the Bright and Beautiful Designer Series Paper 4" x 5 1/4", then slid that into one of our Clear Medium Envelopes.


I then added my shakers inside the envelope, making sure those shaker dots stayed in front of the Designer Series Paper. The shaker pieces I used for this card come from the Loose Frosted Dots in the Online Exclusive part of my online store. Although the Dots and Designer Series Paper weren't designed to go together, there are several of the colors of dots that are the same as colors in the paper. That's good enough for me!


Once the shaker pieces were in the envelope, I tightened up the edges around the Designer Series Paper and adhered those edges down using Tear & Tape. I then adhered it to the card base using Tear & Tape. I decorated the front with the now retired Circle Sayings stamp set, and I'm in love with how it turned out because I stamped the cupcake on two different pieces of Designer Series Paper (DSP), then fussy cut out the cupcake liner from one piece of DSP and fussy cut the frosting of the cupcake from another. The chocolate frosting was colored using the Stampin' Blends Deep Combo Pack.




The "celebrate" circle was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and cut out using the 2 3/8" Circle Punch. The Bubble Bath circle that is layered behind is actually the retired 2 1/2" Circle punch, but when you couldn't find the Stylish Shapes Dies, you improvise. I added the circles using Tear & Tape again, then adhered the pieces of the cupcake together before popping it up in the center of the circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.


You can watch me make this card by heading here, then see below for the supplies list and links to my online store. And don't forget to take advantage of the Last Chance sale, as detailed here.


Happy shaking!

Amy
